Talos, the opening band, was a phenomenal surprise. Tonally gigantic, ethereal and rhythmically militarized in performance. A force of nature. My expectations for AURORA were quite high having read and heard many reviews from people who had seen her live. She went above and beyond those expectations. Her stage presence and connection with the audience reminded me of Bruce Springsteen and Gord Downie - an infinite source of unpredictable energy and authentic appreciation for the artform and the audience. Her storytelling was heartwarming, humourous and captivating. The reworked arrangements of Murder Song and It Happened Quiet were brilliant and refreshing. Not just your typical scaled down/acoustic versions that can come to be expected from most live acts with a following. The new songs In Bottles and The Seed were a welcome surprise and gave glimpses into the dark Nordic native music we know AURORA has a passion for. I desperately hope to hear more of those elements on the follow-up to Infections. The two part encore consisted of Infections of a Different Kind and Queendom. The former was a flawless piano and vocal performance that could easily go down as one of the best live performances of music to be heard. The latter was a triumphant thank you and rally cry to the fans and was a perfect send off for the evening. The camaraderie between Aurora and her band (Magnus, Fredrik, Sinja and Shaun) felt like a rocketship that left Earth's atmosphere when the show finally concluded. Despite being sick (which had no impact on her vocal abilities) Aurora came to meet what few fans stood for nearly 2 hours in the cold after the show to continue to give their thanks. She was so appreciative and kind and took the time to greet and thank everyone who came to say goodnight.
